From time to time every organization has to evaluate their
purpose, mission and sustainability, Texas HERO is no exception.
Texas HERO was originally formed in 2004 as a 501c6 Member
Association, for the purpose of promoting the value of Home Energy Ratings in
Texas. Over the years Texas HERO has worked hard to accomplish this goal and
today we are happy to see the industry alive and strong in Texas.
RESNET reported 45,365 HERS ratings in Texas in 2013, comparing this number to the 2013 US Census Bureau
data of 79,000 single family new home building permits issued in Texas,
over 57% of Texas new homes received a HERS rating. That is a remarkable
number, considering most voluntary industries rarely see a 60% market share.
